►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Special thank you to Sam, Yemane, and Michael. Today was a little bit of a random day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, searching for delicious Ethiopian food. I first met up with Sam, and he took me a little outside of town, an area known for their meat. We asked some locals around, and found a local meat restaurant that everyone agreed was the best in the city. Dulet - Dulet is an Ethiopian food of minced up raw organs, sauteed in Ethiopian spiced butter. It’s incredibly delicious. The the man sitting next to me ordered shekla tibs, a pan of sliced meat fried and served in a charcoal clay pan. It was very chewy, but tasty. Total price - 230 ETB ($8.31) including drinks Tej - Tej is traditional Ethiopian honey wine, and after asking, some people told us there was a local Ethiopian bar just down the road. It was quite an Ethiopian cultural experience. Price - 9 ETB ($0.33) per cup El Shaday Restaurant - Finally, we returned to Addis Ababa, in the center of the city, and searched out an Ethiopian food that I had desperately wanted to eat - called Tihlo. It’s a dish from Tigray, very rare to find in Addis Ababa, and even the friends I was eating with, who are all Ethiopian, had never heard of it, or tried it. So it was a first for all of us. Turned out to be incredibly delicious, and now one of my favorite new Ethiopian dishes. Price - 80 ETB ($2.89) Thank you for watching this unique Ethiopian food tour in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!

Sam, your tourguide, is a well known supporter of the brutal and tribal TPLF.

The first dish served is called Kitfo or trie kitfo. Definitely, not called duliet. Sorry, for spoiling it for you.

I never thought of Ethiopia as foodie place or even a place to visit but it's on the bucket list after seeing these videos! Ethiopia seems a wonderful place, great food, beautiful people, and such beautiful smiles! Thank you Mark, much love from Micronesia!

The guy was guide him very traditional area by sacrificed his precious time. He's not there to eat food & he isn't tour guide guy,he's journalist. Food is very cheap over there,sometimes they don't charge for guests even.
Wenchif (2 hours ago)
He is not a journalist. Sam is a notorious TPLF cadre.

Mark I love your videos and how you respect every culture. Question: do you take meds prior to eating many raw foods? Just curious... Im a native Ethiopian and I dont even eat half of the things you had so Im shocked you have no reservations on trying raw or new foods. I love your positive energy tho!

Just be careful when eating the raw meats . You need to take good anti parasite for deworming.

Eri Sam (21 days ago)
It's a shame we don't get the locals more involved in explaining about the food. The journalist looked bored sitting next to him. As he is Ethiopian it would have been great to see him explain how you eat or drink the local foods and drinks. Apart from that great job.

Ahh, I think since the ladies weren't happy about you going into the kitchen, you should have respected them and stayed out.🤔
Bernadette Rocha (29 days ago)
I work at a family shelter which tends to serve many Ethiopian families throughout the year. The mom's have taught me how to cook the foods, and also have shared their culture with me. It's the best food in the world, and I even prefer it to American food. I can cook it pretty well now, and even the mom's continue to teach new dishes to me. PLUS -- Traditionally made Ethiopian coffee is like nothing America can ever offer! Fortunately, we have many Ethiopian markets and restaurants here in Seattle.😄

Nice one minus the two guys. I could hear one of them actually saying in Amharic he doesn't like asking questions. What kind of journalist doesn't like to ask questions ? There is nothing wrong in asking the lady to explain what's the ingredients are and translate that. My peeps are very friendly and like to show off their culture. I think you should just ask your guides to be translators and hear what the locals have to say.

Tihlo is a traditional dish from part of Ethiopian and Eritrea that served in special occasions such as wedding, Christmas etc,. that's why Tihlo is so rear, but the best food ever. Thank you for sharing your experience, you are amazing Mark.

Stabbers? Those are called forks. Also, it´s questionable eating raw meat in third world countries.
